Biafra Group Applies For UN Membership by 9jaIhail(m): 10:29pm On Aug 13, 2012
A pro-Biafran group, Biafra Zionist Movement (BZM), has formally applied that Biafra be accorded the status of an observer member of the United Nations. Briefing newsmen in Enugu yesterday, President of the group, Mr. Benjamin Onwuka, said the application was submitted to the UN Security Council on August 6. Onwuka who said his group was working towards projecting Biafra to the economic community, noted that the move was the first of its kind since the struggle for an Independent State of Biafra. He disclosed that his group had also, through the African Union (AU) Secretariat in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, requested for a meeting of all AU heads of state and governments to be convened in Kampala on October 22.

Onwuka explained that with the application, the UN membership would give Biafra the recognition and support it had lacked since the republic was born on May 30, 1967. “The UN would now have the mandate and power to intervene, investigate and issue arrest against anyone who uses violence or force to kill Biafrans in their quest for self-determination.

“It would now be against international law for the Nigerian State, through its president, governors or security forces to use force to kill Biafrans either as individuals or groups.” The BZM leader disclosed that the application was based on the grounds that, “the security of life and property of the Biafran people were no longer guaranteed in the entity called Nigeria. “It is also clear that the right of the Biafran people to practice their religion and freedom of association is no longer safe and guaranteed in Nigeria.

“Therefore the people of Biafra have resolved that on November 5, 2012 we shall be re-declaring our independence and opt out of Nigeria in order that we Biafran people can guarantee and protect the Biafran peoples’ right to practice their religion without being bombed.” On the recent statement where MASSOB leader, Ralph Uwazuruike, dissociated himself from the declaration in November, Onwuka described him as one who had lost faith in the struggle. “We have information about him and his preference for Nigeria and her politics, so we are not interested in him or what he thinks. The struggle for Biafra is on and advancing; we are determined and we shall realise the dreams of our people.

Why are your people that gullible? Must you have it all all the time? You wanted Sharia state and it was given to you, what else do you want? Your leaders that have come out in public to throw support for Boko Haram are they not selfish? Abiola that was imprisoned by Abacha and IBB were they not his friends? Thank God for internet, when ever you bring dummy to sell to us, all we have to do is to use google to check for fact....Bro make you start to look for ideas to better your region jore....Happy Ramadam Kareem

A lot of things have bee said in the past that men did not believe in, If you remain focused, undisturbed, steadfast and ready for the cation, You will succeed.
After jailing Mandela, some of his own people called him names (fool, HE wants to be a hero, You are silly, etc.) am sure but today he is celebrated for maintaining his dreams and believe, He relied on his initial dream not the one people made him to believe. If truly you have gone this far, then words from even your own enemy is something to ignore.
I cherish it when people go for their dream. So many people live other people's dream. Who no like am make him go dream him own.[/color]
